New research institute to be established at Blue Ridge Cancer Care

Roanoke, Virginia – A new research institute will be established at Roanoke’s Blue Ridge Cancer Care in order to affirm its commitment to clinical research.
Besides the institute is new, their cancer research work isn’t.
For more than 40 years cancer patients are being treated at Blue Ridge Cancer Care. 15 members are working on clinical trials at the institute.
Patients can get cutting-edge cancer care at the institute without having to leave Southwest Virginia.
“Blue Ridge Cancer Care has partnered with the US Oncology Network, and with that network there are 1,200 physicians nationwide, so we have exposure to over 60 clinical trials here that are offered to our patients,” BRCC President Dr. David Buck said.
In Southwest Virginia, Blue Ridge Cancer Care is the largest oncology clinical research program.
